There are no binaries being built for Indigo on Ubuntu 14.10, not even for x86/amd64.

The only Ubuntu OS for which Indigo binaries are provided is Ubuntu Trusty (14.04).

See REP-3 - Target Platforms - Indigo Igloo and wiki/Installation/UbuntuARM.

you could perhaps try to override OS detection (ROS_OS_OVERRIDE) and add the Trusty ROS repository to your Utopic system, but I don't think I have to explain why that is not recommended.

Edit: also just noticed this:

Failed to fetch [..]

trust is not a valid Ubuntu OS codename. Should that be trusty (but see earlier note)?
